Bella! Feline Votives in Pink and Blue

Bella! You can’t miss those round eyes, curling tail and ebony black fur! I had the idea for Bella! and first used her on the tote bag, but knew I’d use her silhouette on many other things. As I sorted through my repurposed condiment jars with ideas for votives, I could picture her on these […]

Buy 2 for $25.00 on Many Gift Items

Each item on my website has $5.00 added into the posted price to cover average shipping. But shipping two of most items often costs no more than shipping one. I always give a discount at in-person sales at shows and in my shop, and I try to offer discounts to customers who don’t live close […]

Featured Artwork: Sleeping Beauty, a Turning Point ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch was the first time I looked at a scene, took in all the necessary details, visualized the finished work, and actually created what I had visualized on the paper, all because I loved my Sally and wanted to share that. Animals give us so much in everyday life, but my cats have given […]

If You Enjoy My Artwork, You’ll Enjoy My “Feline Style Sampler”

In autumn 2013 I created this little portfolio piece, Feline Style Sampler, sketches and portraits, to include in presentations to prospective illustration customers to both show a variety of styles of illustration and my ability to design a little book like this and have it printed and bound. I was very pleased with the way […]

More New Feline and Flower Votives

Since we’re not recycling glass anymore I’m still using glass jars from condiments and pickles and such for feline and flower votives, and this time I worked out a few different designs of ones that are painted on the outside rather than using the clear labels, and some can be used with pillar candles or […]

A Few New Ideas

This weekend’s crafty experiments were pretty disappointing, but cute—accessory bags, below, and refrigerator magnets, above. The experiment with diluting the Armour glass etch was a total flop, so I have no new votives as I had hoped. Yes, it was all a little disappointing, but nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say. I’ll just have […]

Office Cat Watches You

Office cat says I need to sit down and get to work. And that work is providing a lap for her. My that Sienna is getting bold, and what a talented model too, providing us all with this unique photo! I walked in the door and, as always, glanced around the room to locate all […]

Marketplace: Ailurobibliophile Tote Bags on Sale ~ The Creative Cat

I’m down to five of my original Ailurobibliophile tote bags, one in each color. The images on these five are, well, less than perfect, not quite centered, not evenly printed, possibly a little off kilter, most of it apparent when you compare two side by side. So it’s your chance to get the design, slightly […]

Daily Sketch Reprise: Colorful Kelly, 2012 ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch totally surprised me—I’d never done a thing like it before. Inspired by Kelly awaking from a nap on my desk I’d been about to try out these watercolor pencils while she was sleeping. I discovered that what I thought was black was navy blue and decided to go ahead. I’m so glad I […]
